The New York Post: Uber, Lyft suspend driver for secretly livestreaming passengers

A driver for Uber and Lyft in Missouri used a webcam to secretly record unsuspecting customers — then broadcast the footage on the internet for the world to see.

Jason Gargac, 32, of St. Louis posted online nearly 700 rides, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

After the paper outed Gargac, Uber suspended his account, and Lyft booted him from the service.

Every visible and audible detail of hundreds of trips in his Chevrolet pickup — passengers’ faces, conversations and drop-off locations — were streamed on the Microsoft MSFT, +1.79% -owned website Twitch.

“I feel violated. I’m embarrassed,” said one passenger tracked down by the broadsheet, who asked not to be identified.
